Welcome back to another thrilling instalment of Fantasy Acting League. Before we dive in, I have a few things to share with you. Namely my very first short film which can be viewed for free on Youtube right here. I would love it if you could watch it, leave it a like and maybe even a comment. It is the kind of two minute video that is designed to be shared on people’s Facebook pages, especially if you are British and living in the shadow of the upcoming general election (yeah, it’s a bit political). Please let me know your thoughts. But enough of my self-marketing… We are here to try and finally catch up with Cinema Parrot Disco and her heinous lead. Do we have what it takes to put a stop to her?

Round Analysis

From the looks of it, a few teams were waiting for this month for quite some time. While we only had a few actors scoring thsi time around, those that scored all seemed to originate from the same few teams. Lily from What About Movies, for example, had four out of six of her players score her valuable points, pole-vaulting her into the middle of the pack, making her yet another contender for dark horse of this particular race. Meanwhile Marked Movies has landed himself a comfortable second place role, making an unscoring Cinema Parrot Disco seem less unstoppable as she did when she first took that jaw-dropping lead. Meanwhile the front of the pack are still unable to shake each other off, all grabbing the same amount of points, so while they are climbing the ranks steadily, there is little distance gained between them. 2017 is just as thrilling when it started five months previous.

  1. Would you look at that beautiful shit!!! That’s quite a hike I’ve taken. I knew Fassy and Waterston would come good. Can’t fault Ms. Chastain either. I’m a happy Fantasy Leaguer today! 🙂
